The Commons Shopping Center facts for kids
The initial plans for The Commons were submitted to the Berkeley County Planning Commission in February 2007. The original plans called for a 104,231 SF tenant to be beside Target. It was reported by The Journal on February 12, 2008, that a major tenant had backed out of the project. The unnamed major tenant was later replaced with Dick's Sporting Goods (50,000 SF) and a series of others, ranging from 1,000 to 15,000 SF.
Development started on The Commons shopping center in May 2008. The 45-acre (180,000 m2) site was developed and is managed by AIG Baker, LLC. The first store (Bed Bath and Beyond) opened in early July 2009 with 8 other anchors opening within the next 45 days. Staples is the only major anchor that did not have a 2009 opening.
Bed Bath & Beyond's store at The Commons is its third in West Virginia.
In December 2012, an American Automobile Association office moved into the center from downtown. A hotel is slated to be added in 2013.
